Well... that went fast.

So I had meant to post everyday since 2015 started. And obviously it has taken 4 days to do so. Oops.

So here is the deal. I have gone back on my super restrictive diet ... er lifestyle shift. This means I have turned my back on carbs (bread, cookies, flour and gluten based thing/heavy amount), I have also dropped the veggies (anything that is not protein) - and indulged myself in protein. And a small, small, amount of carbs that come with some of the high protein things.

Today was the toughest day - I found some cookies in my bag, and I stood in the kitchen trying to convince myself that one -bag- would not be harmful. I was strong - they sit in my cupboard along with the other cookies. Uneaten, I may add. Tomorrow I must make sure I have to pack protein shake, bar, and my lovely lunch. Actually, its Cordon-Bleu, so it's delish!

I am going to do the pure protein for about 2-3 weeks, if I can manage maybe to the end of the month. The first week of Feb. I am traveling back to Dallas for Comic Con, and that may be my next transition point.  I have found some wonderful coconut flour to make some pizza dough. I made some "cloud bread" - eggs, cream cheese, and cream of tartar. It took FOREVER to whip the egg whites to stiffness. I don't have a blender, so a whisk was my friend. It sucked. But it made some "bread" rounds, so I can try one in the morning - with the discarded/messed up egg whites and egg yokes.

And so there we have the beginning of 2015.
